Dorothy Parker

"Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I'd been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.”
Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker

Roman Payne
“Champagne arrived in flûtes on trays, and we emptied them with gladness in our hearts... for when feasts are laid and classical music is played, where champagne is drunk once the sun has sunk and the season of summer is alive in spicy bloom, and beautiful women fill the room, and are generous with laughter and smiles... these things fill men's hearts with joy and remind one that life’s bounty is not always fleeting but can be captured, and enjoyed. It is in writing about this scene that I relive this night in my soul.”
Roman Payne

David Levithan
“The thing about champagne,you say, unfoiling the cork, unwinding the wire restraint, is that is the ultimate associative object. Every time you open a bottle of champagne, it's a celebration, so there's no better way of starting a celebration than opening a bottle of champagne. Every time you sip it, you're sipping from all those other celebrations. The joy accumulates over time.”
David Levithan, The Lover's Dictionary

Ellen Dean
“Think champagne, drink champagne!”

Coco Chanel

When you drink too much champagne, you get sick of it.

Khang Kijarro Nguyen

Anthony Powell
“Champagne, m'lord?'
'Have we got any? One bottle would do. Even a half-bottle.'
Smith's face puckered, as if manfully attempting to force his mind to grapple with a mathematical or philosophical problem of extraordinary complexity. His bearing suggested that he had certainly before heard the word 'champagne' used, if only in some distant, outlandish context; that devotion to his master alone gave him some apprehension of what this question—these ravings, almost—might mean. Nothing good could come of it. This was a disastrous way to talk. That was his unspoken message so far as champagne was concerned. After a long pause, he at last shook his head.
'I doubt if there is any champagne left, m'lord.”
Anthony Powell, A Dance to the Music of Time: 2nd Movement

Napoléon Bonaparte
“Always carry champagne! In victory You deserve it & in defeat You need it!”
Napoléon Bonaparte

Sara Sheridan

Sara Sheridan, British Bulldog

Edith Wharton
“This new resolve gave her a sort of light-headed self-confidence: when she left the dinner-table she felt so easy and careless that she was surprised to see that the glass of champagne beside her plate was untouched. She felt as if all its sparkles were whirling through her.”
Edith Wharton, The Mother's Recompense

Winston S. Churchill
“I could not live without Champagne. In victory I deserve it. In defeat I need it.”
Winston S. Churchill

Elaine Dundy
“I hate champagne more than anything in the world next to Seven-Up.”
Elaine Dundy, The Dud Avocado

Amit Kalantri
“Mixing old wine with new wine is stupidity, but mixing old wisdom with new wisdom is maturity.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Linnea Gelland
“På samma sätt som en kapsyl sprätts av från en sockerdricksflaska for han upp igen. Liknelsen hade onekligen fungerat bättre om det varit en kork i en champagneflaska, men Johannes drack som bekant inte champagne, utan sockerdricka.”
Linnea Gelland, Den gula bästsäljaren

Wilhelm Busch
“Wie lieb und luftig perlt die Blase
Der Witwe Klicko in dem Glase.”
Wilhelm Busch, Die fromme Helene

Lauren Groff
“watching the tiny bubbles flea-jump out the top of her glass”
Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies

Susan Wiggs
“Servers moved among the guests with trays of hors d'oeuvres and the signature cocktail, champagne with a honey infused liqueur and a delicate spiral twist of lemon.
The banquet was bursting with color and flavor- flower-sprinkled salads, savory chili roasted salmon, honey glazed ribs, just-harvested sweet corn, lush tomatoes and berries, artisan cheeses. Everything had been harvested within a fifty-mile radius of Bella Vista.
The cake was exactly what Tess had requested, a gorgeous tower of sweetness. Tess offered a gracious speech as she and Dominic cut the first slices. "I've come a long way from the city girl who subsisted on Red Bull and microwave burritos," she said. "There's quite a list of people to thank for that- my wonderful mother, my grandfather and my beautiful sister who created this place of celebration. Most of all, I'm grateful to Dominic." She turned to him, offering the first piece on a yellow china plate. "You're my heart, and there is no sweeter feeling than the love we share. Not even this cake. Wait, that might be overstating it. Everyone, be sure you taste this cake. It's one of Isabel's best recipes.”
Susan Wiggs, The Beekeeper's Ball

Jorge Amado
“L'allegria va conservata nello champagne; mentre la cachaça tutt’al più consola dalle disgrazie, quando consola”
Jorge Amado, Tereza Batista: Home from the Wars

Israelmore Ayivor
